If you are using an incorrect crushing chamber then you are compromising on productivity, liner life or both.

The eccentric throw is one of the most important parameters in defining the job that your cone crusher does.

To make sure that your crusher is delivering the desired product, and maximizing its efficiency and productivity, there are a few potential issues that you should be alert to.

Maximizing the life of wear parts is a major consideration in any efficient crushing operation.

Poor feed arrangements affect crusher performance, liner life and the life of mechanical components, so it is crucial that you can identify and deal with any problems.

Poor feed conditions can adversely affect productivity and liner life, so it is vital that you get it right.
